Vintage Pearl Review & Giveaway – Frugal Novice

Vintage Pearl Review & Giveaway

Have you ever known you’re going to love a store just by seeing their logo? That’s seriously how I felt when I first saw the Vintage Pearl – I could just tell good things were in store for me when I got to their site. And oh, were there ever. Take a look at just a few of their pieces:

Erin Edwards started selling jewelry online back in 2007, and over the years it expanded into what is now VintagePearl.com, along with a storefront in Tulsa, OK. There are a lot of moms at The Vintage Pearl, so I thought it’d be fun to do a little Mother’s Day Q&A with them.

How did you tell your spouse you were pregnant with your first child?
• Asked him if he liked Jr. added to his name
• After 3 years of trying to get pregnant, he saw me crying when I came out of the bathroom and knew
• He came in the bathroom to check on me as I was throwing up and I blurted it out, “I’m pregnant!”

What’s the funniest/most embarrassing thing your child’s ever said?
• My daughter (6 yrs) told me she wants to be Jesus when she grows up
• My son calls the vintage pearl “the egg store” because of the nest of eggs on the sign of the store. he
says “mommy, are you going to make eggs?”
• I was pregnant and my daughter saw a woman who was a little overweight and said “you have a baby in
your tummy like my mommy,” but she wasn’t pregnant

What advice would you give new or soon-to-be parents?
• Enjoy every moment
• It’s harder than anybody tells you it will be and more wonderful than anyone can explain
• Sleep when your child is sleeping

What children’s show/movie do you secretly like almost as much as your child does?
• Sonny With a Chance
• Penguins of Madagascar
• Good Luck Charlie
• Finding Nemo
• iCarly
• Electric Company

What movie would you be fine with never having to watch again, after having seen it a million times by now?
• Alvin & the Chipmunks, the Squeakual
• Thomas the Tank Engine
• Up (it’s too sad)
• Anything Thomas the Tank Engine
• Teletubbies!!!!
• High School Musical

What’s your secret for getting your kids to eat their veggies?
• Hide it in sauce
• Giving the ones they will eat then supplementing with vitamins
• Unfortunately haven’t conquered this feat

‘Fess up: Are there any foods you make your kids eat that you wouldn’t eat yourself?
• Sweet peas
• Nope…if I wouldn’t eat it, I don’t make them
• Baby food meats
• Seafood

What’s your favorite way to spend time with your kids?
• Playing at the park
• Cuddled up in bed watching t.v.
• Playing outside, watching movies
• Go to the park or the pool and play
• Playing sports
• Playing outside in the yard or park with bikes, balls, badminton

How do you relax when you get “you” time?
• Read
• Watch mindless t.v.
• Reading, pedicures, shopping, girls night
• Shopping, a bath, a pedicure or massage
• Read, eat, watch t.v.
• Playing sodoku or wrapping pearls

So now I love the Vintage Pearl even more, because I can totally relate to some of these answers! Can you?

I spent quite a bit of time on their site browsing the different options they have available.  I seriously contemplated getting this necklace to review – isn’t it completely adorable? In the end, though, I fell in love with this sterling silver cuff . Once it arrived, I knew for sure I’d made the right decision.

I can’t tell you how much I love this bracelet! I had it stamped with the boys’ names & birth dates, and I think it turned out just perfect. This bracelet is solid – I’ve had some cuffs in the past that felt flimsy, but that’s not the case at all here. It’s slim and clean, and something I’ll probably wear every day.

Love the jewelry as much as I do? You’re in luck! :)

One lucky reader will win a $50 gift code to the Vintage Pearl! This contest is open to all US residents. Entries will be accepted until the end of the day (midnight CST) Thursday, May 5.
